TIPS AND TRICKS
- We recommend attending the event using a laptop or PC, as we cannot guarantee it will work flawlessly on mobile.
- For the best Facebook Live via Streamyard experience, we recommend you to use Chrome or Firefox. Please avoid Brave, Safari, and Microsoft IE or Edge.
- Public Lands Foundation is not responsible for internet outages or technical difficulties.
For a great online experience in Facebook Live via Streamyard, our virtual event platform, the recommendation is a minimum of 5mbps download and 2mbps upload speed. Ideal would be 30mbps download and 10mbps upload or higher for guaranteeing best quality. Please close all additional tabs on your computer or device to help increase internet bandwidth.
Make sure you are using Chrome or Firefox and that your browser is fully up to date. Please avoid Brave, Safari, and Microsoft IE or Edge are not fully supported as they lack the support needed for live video events.
If there is constant buffering, it could be a sign that your browser is not up to date. If it is, flip to compatibility mode/view as the buffering could then be an indication for an insufficient internet speed. There is still buffering after going to compatibility mode? Then try to switch browsers and go into compatibility mode in that one.
